In early April Xbox announced that it would be releasing an update to add the use of USB storage devices for the 360. That was good news for those with an Arcade version Xbox or just wanted their profile to go with them so they wouldn’t miss out on every little bit of gamerscore.
Microsoft of course had to put out their own Xbox 360 brand Sandisk USB flash drive so as to not miss out on the opportunity they created. To be fair its not just an empty flash drive. The drive comes pre-formatted to work with the Xbox and comes with a free month of live to get you gaming with friends out of the box. I would be crazy not to mention the lanyard thats only available while supplies last.
The drive may be a little expensive at $69.99 but I have to commend Xbox for adding this support to let gamers have the on-line gaming experience they want while Sony keeps removing selling points such as backwards compatibility and their other OS support on the Playstation 3 making PS3 owners going to court.
